First post on the new forum and a belated thanks to admins for keeping my details this long so I could sign in :)

It's one of those "where do I post it" questions but since there's a gas meter question already, I'll add this one.

Our gas meter is a "British Gas Mk II Built-in" meter box. The lock "pin" (the triangular bit used to open the box) is plastic and has been rounded off so the standard key no longer works. The hinges don't look as if they can be easily removed, so I don't really want to change the door (assuming I could get one). The lock is plastic, so could probably be removed fairly easily, so I'd like to just replace that.

Any idea where I might be able to buy just the lock? Really don't want to have to pay British Gas to fit a new box :eek:

Google 'Gas Meter box lock'. you will find options. I think it s known as a cam lock.
